Northern Ireland man forges ahead after his brain injury
A Ballymena man has fought back from a traumatic brain injury to launch his own blacksmith business.
James McCullough worked with the Go For It Programme and Mid & East Antrim Borough Council to set up his business.
He launched Patterson's Forge Hammer & Tongs in February at the National Trust's Patterson's Spade Mill in Templepatrick.
He said that he has already "built up a steady stream of orders" and his workshops and classes are now fully subscribed.
Go For It mentored and advised Mr McCullough during the process. He worked as a HGV driver for 20 years but suffered a serious brain injury at work in 2005.
